About Mycaeri Atkinson

As a Research Fellow, Mycaeri Atkinson contributes to a wide array of research studies at RFA.

She is currently evaluating  the Dallas County (TX) Promise Program, a coalition of school districts, postsecondary institutions, employers and communities working together to help more Dallas County students complete college and begin careers. In addition, Atkinson conducted a 50-state policy scan for a new digital portal that integrates data, policies, and resources about DACA and undocumented students to fuel change at the federal, state, and campus level, and build a diverse movement of partners and stakeholders advocating for undocumented students who are in the postsecondary landscape.

Prior to joining RFA, Atkinson was a research analyst and writer for the Virginia Department of Health and a third grade teacher in the Teach For America Greater New Orleans corps. Atkinson is currently a graduate student in Brown University’s Urban Education Policy program where she assists on community democracy research.
